Reviews

"A genre-defying mix of travel writing, scientific fact, poetry and outrage. . . . The book could hardly be more timely or more powerful." -The Seattle Times

"[Ehrlich] has more words for snow than the Eskimos. . . . So much lyrical power that you'll be dreading spring." -People Magazine

"Ehrlich is a writer as weathered as the season she chases. . . . And the blustery scenery provides beautiful metaphors for the storms inside her head. . . .The book howls." -Outside

"What is striking about this intimate lament is Gretel Ehrlich's eloquent use of language to communicate dire facts. . . . [She] conveys the horror with a beauty that makes it hard to turn away. . . . Never preachy, she is instead poetic." -Chicago Sun-Times

"A powerful book by one of the West's foremost writers on the natural world. . . . An accessible, poetic and urgent frontline report from frigid, yet vibrant territories and ice-laden ocean waters that few of us have visited. . . . Ehrlich painstakingly observes what most others scarcely notice." -Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"A lament born of facts. . . . Ehrlich paints the moods, landscapes, and lives of sentient beings in some of the most timeless spaces on the planet." -The Bloomsbury Review

"Objective fact and subjective experience are woven together with lyrical descriptions of place, scientific information and spiritual reflection. . . . Ehrlich gives us a reason to celebrate the beauty of winter and to act to save it." -E, the Environmental Magazine

"An intimate book that's part celebration of, part lament for and part meditation on cold. . . . The result will inspire, anger and frighten you." -Santa Barbara News-Press
